Chinchilla News - - BEST OF THE WEST -

TWO of Aus­tralia’s big­gest rock mu­sic acts will head­line a spe­cial char­ity con­cert in Dir­ran­bandi this win­ter.

Paul Kelly and Cold Chisel’s Ian Moss will make their way to the small town on June 2 to help raise funds for the Dir­ran­bandi P–10 State School agri­cul­tural stud­ies pro­gram.

The pro­gram, which started at the Dir­ran­bandi State School back in 2016, of­fers stu­dents an op­por­tu­nity to ac­quire the skills and knowl­edge nec­es­sary to live and work on the land.

The event host, Dir­ran­bandi Pas­toral and Agri­cul­tural As­so­ci­a­tion, is work­ing to­wards sus­tain­ing the pro­gram, of­fer­ing work ex­pe­ri­ence to stu­dents on hol­i­day, fund­ing schol­ar­ships to agri­cul­tural col­leges and sup­port­ing those who stay in the com­mu­nity.

Event or­gan­iser Danny Shee­han said the pro­gram was work­ing to com­bat the de­creas­ing pop­u­la­tion in small towns, with the purpose of the con­cert to raise both funds and aware­ness for small town liv­ing.
